The Longest Night or Blue Christmas Service is for those experiencing grief, loss or hardship, or difficulty dealing with the COVID 19 pandemic, the Christmas season may not be the most wonderful time of the year. The music and other holiday traditions associated with the Christmas season such as decorating, baking, holiday shopping and gathering with family and friends focus on the joy and cheer of the season which may be painful for those suffering the pain of loss and grief. Loss comes in many forms, it may be the death of a loved one, the loss of a marriage or relationship, a job, or a home. Any loss that causes us pain and sorrow. To assist people who may have difficulty coping with the season, the Modern Maturity Center is offering a Longest Night or Blue Christmas service on Tuesday December 21 at 1:00 p.m. and again in the evening at 6:00 p.m. in the West Conference Room. Lite refreshments will be served. This is an ecumenical service, and it is FREE and open to anyone in the community in need of comforting.
